Gable over a hip roof "skirt"

Recommended Posts

For our remodel project we want to vault a room that's currently got a hip roof, converting MOST of the roof into a full width gable.

We'd like to leave the existing wall with a bay window intact along with its short hip roof "skirt", making the rest of it a gable (see attached hand drawing).

 

Can anyone give me some hints on the best approach for entering this with Home Designer Pro 2019?  After having watched the online videos, I've been experimenting by drawing little test houses with Gable/Roof Lines, overgrown dormers, and have not yet figured out how to construct this.  Am I missing an obvious way to do it, or is this a complex thing that I need to get some expert help with?

Thanks!

All that I see is a gable roof  (main front wall)  with a full roof return extended out over the bay window.

Posting the plan will most always get you a better answer.

Jo Ann is probably correct, as usual. 

 

However if the gable wall is not in the same plane as the wall below, then you will need a Dutch Gable.
